We consider the pulsar rotation assuming that the neutron star consists of crust component (which rotation is observed) and two core components. One of the core components contains pinned superfluid which can, for some reasons, suddenly inject small fraction of stored angular momentum in it. In the framework of this simple model the star can demonstrate glitch-like events together with long period precession (with period $1-10^{4}$ years).

The long-term rotation dynamics of neutron stars with differentially rotating unmagnetized core
We consider the pulsar long-term rotation dynamics taking into account the non-rigidity of neutron star rotation. We restrict our attention to the models with two essential assumptions: (1)
Precession of Isolated Neutron Stars. I. Effects of Imperfect Pinning
We consider the precession of isolated neutron stars in which superfluid is not pinned to the stellar crust perfectly. In the case of perfect pinning, Shaham showed that there are no slowly
Free precession of neutron stars: Role of possible vortex pinning
Vortex pinning affects neutron stellar free precession by modifying its frequency and geometry, in a gyroscopic effect. For neutron stars with low oblateness, the free precession frequency is given
Incompatibility of long-period neutron star precession with creeping neutron vortices
Aims. To determine whether “vortex creep” in neutron stars, the slow motion of neutron vortices with respect to pinning sites in the core or inner crust, is consistent with observations of
Persistent crust–core spin lag in neutron stars
It is commonly believed that the magnetic field threading a neutron star provides the ultimate mechanism (on top of fluid viscosity) for enforcing long-term corotation between the slowly spun down
Magnetic field inertia and rotation dynamics of radio pulsars
In this article, we discuss the magnetic field inertia that results in the so-called anomalous electromagnetic torque, making neutron stars precess. We focus particularly on the relative contribution
Influence of the small-scale magnetic field on the evolution of the angle between the magnetic moment and rotation axis of radio pulsars with superfluid cores
The evolution of the angle between the magnetic moment and rotation axis of radio pulsars (inclination angle) is considered taking into account the presence of a non-dipolar magnetic field at the
Two decades of pulsar timing of Vela
Abstract Pulsar timing at the Mt Pleasant observatory has focused on Vela, which can be tracked for 18 hours of the day. These nearly continuous timing records extend over 24 years allowing a greater
Evolution of non-spherical pulsars with plasma-filled magnetospheres
Pulsars are famous for their rotational stability. Most of them steadily spin down and display a highly repetitive pulse shape. But some pulsars experience timing irregularities such as nulling,
Periodic modulation in pulse arrival times from young pulsars: a renewed case for neutron star precession
In a search for periodic variation in the arrival times of pulses from 151 young, energetic pulsars, we have identified seven cases of modulation consistent with one or two harmonics of a single
